Security has to be practical
So, what can businesses do to protect themselves from identity theft? Security solutions that require an extensive security procedure for each and every access to applications and systems make it difficult for employees to do their daily work, and they lead to productivity losses. What is needed are user-friendly and scalable multi-factor authentication (MFA) methods. Many different solution scenarios are conceivable, e.g., combining a password with a security token for a single sign-on (SSO) solution. In this case, the user only needs to remember one password for all applications, but an additional level of security is gained by the use of a security token.
